This was a great place to enjoy some down-home southern food during my visit to Huntsville. Prices were reasonable. The fruit plate was amazing.

At first glance this cafe appeared like one of those iconic fifties classics without the poodle skirts and saddle shoes. Inside the the employees move with precision like a well oiled machine. Taking orders and routing everthing through the kitchen. This my fellow travelers is where the whole show came to a very anti climatic end. The food we ordered... More

Although living in the general area most of my life, I just got around to stopping by the Blue Plate Cafe for lunch yesterday. It was everything I had heard it was- great food (chicken and dressing, Mac and cheese, slaw, pintos) and exceptional, friendly service. And they were packed- but our waitress (I'm sick I can't remember her name)... More

We've been driving 40 miles one way to eat breakfast at Blue Plate Cafe for years now. I love the multi grain pancakes with berries.

Blue plate really does make an amazing breakfast. Great choc chip pancakes, hash browns, bacon and eggs. So glad to have a place like this in hville.

We have heard of this place for years and decided to give it a try for breakfast! Wonderful diner type atmosphere! Our waitress, Maribel, was very nice and quick with coffee refills. Great light and fluffy pancakes; my husband had the scrambled eggs with crispy bacon and cheese grits - very good! Only complaint - you can only get the... More

What a yummy lunch while I was here on vacation. My husband kept saying 'I didn't know you like fried catfish'. This was the best I have ever had!

If you are looking for breakfast or a meat and three for lunch, this is it! The food is Southern home cooking and the service is the best. Locally owned, no chain. This will be a good experience. There are daily specials. Parking is often a problem, but it is worth it. There is a quick turnover, so I suggest... More

I eat here most Saturday mornings with a group. The servers know us and treat us like preferred guests. The food is good, the service fast, and the prices are reasonable. Try the whole grain pancakes with pecans. And their turkey sausage and bacon are the best around.
